I really enjoy a great black and white ensemble, so any chance I can get my hands on a unique piece, I do!
I would like to add that the focal pieces of these looks were purchased from White House Black Market. If you didn’t already know this, everything in the store is black and white, (aside from their season color focus.) Since black and white items are the majority of what they sell, I tend to find myself shopping their locations first when searching for my next black and, or, white piece.
For the first look, I paired this lightweight lace popover top with black skinny jeans, pom pom sneakers, tassel earrings, and cat eye sunglasses. This comfortable, and chic look has so many interesting details and textures, yet nothing is overpowered. That’s what I love about black and white, you can add a subtle pop of color, and mix different textures while still staying chic.
My next look is ideal for the beachside! This beautiful striped maxi dress is stretchy, features a slit on the side, and is perfect for a day out in the sun. I paired it with comfortable sandals, and my favorite oversized floppy hat. For this look, I kept my accessories solid black. This assists in streamlining the look, as the dresses’ striped print is very bold, and the spotlighted feature.
I purchased these pieces from the White House Black Market outlet for under 20$ each! If you have never made it out to one of their outlets, I highly recommend you stop in! They offer very flattering, high quality products ranging from classic tailored work wear, to trendy weekend t-shirts! You never know just what you might find on sale!
